The Marikana Massacre in August 2012 involved the largest number of deaths of South African civilians by the security forces since the end of apartheid. The mineworkers were on strike for a living wage and were simply demanding the right to speak with their employer when the police attacked. The core of Marikana is a series of interviews conducted with those present. In addition, the book includes a narrative of the strike and the massacre, an analysis of context and political significance and a list of those who died at Marikana. Includes 5 maps and 14 photos.
